I adopted my beloved Edison no longer with me because Kelowna was over-run with cats. I couldn't bear the thought of him being put down and the person I got him from had three litters before he was born. I finally called on her but there is only so much the SPCA and other shelters can do. People need to take responsibility. Great post Jodi on bringing awareness to this topic!
